Striped Irish Hiking Scarf

The yarn I used for this scarf is Ashford Tekapo DK; although it is marketed as a double knit (8ply) yarn, it is thicker than most DK yarns and is more a worsted weight (10ply) yarn. The grey yarn was left over from the Mr Greenjeans cardigan I knitted last winter and as I had a couple of skeins of the pink and blue in my stash, as well, I thought that it would be a good idea to combine the three colours. The yarn is very soft and warm, so is ideal for a scarf which can be worn on cold winter days.
